Parry makes it two on the spin at Stock Brook
In a late change to the schedule, the sixth event of the Golf Days UK Essex Tour was played at Stock Brook Golf Club on a glorious June afternoon. Following a win at Five Lakes Dave Parry arrived sporting one of his prizes, a pair of ‘Swirls Gone Wild’ Loudmouth trousers. As the tour reached the second half, several players could be seen in their bright Loudmouth gear, as all event winners receive a £75 voucher as well as the usual selection of golfing prizes.
Conditions were set for a good scoring afternoon but the punishing rough caught several people out and in the end only 3 players managed scores over 30 points. Ben Scott, the Romford major winner took third prize with his score of 31 points off his new ¾ handicap of 6. Runner up was tour regular Kamal Lakhani with 34 points off his ¾ handicap of 9. The winner, receiving a pair of Addidas Golf Shoes supplied by Chris Potter Golf was Dave Parry with 37 points playing off 14 on the day. As he won wearing Loudmouth gear he also got a bonus prize of £150 to spend on more Loudmouth golf clothing of his choice. Nearest the pins on the day were both won by Ben Crew, playing in his first Essex Tour event.
With a players best 5 order of merit scores counting for the overall leaderboard, it’s all change at the top as a few more players have completed the 5 rounds required. With a total of 455 points former leader Jason Skelton drops back to third position. Mick Thompson moves into second by 1 point with his total of 456 after playing in 5 events. The new leader is the current Essex Tour Champion Nigel Goude with 461 points. As players complete their 5 rounds they try to improve on
their lowest Order of Merit score in future events. With four events still to play including another major at Frinton Golf Club it’s still wide open at this stage.
